Year 6 Homework
Your homework will consist of the following:
Reading. We will continue to use AR and expect you to read for 15-20 minutes at least four times a week. This should be recorded in your reading record. Please ensure your reading record is in school every day; you can receive raffle tickets and be entered into the class draw and possibly win a book by our author of the term Michael Morpurgo!
Spelling. You will be practising the National Curriculum Spelling lists in school. You will have individual spellings according to the ones you need to learn. Remember, these are in the back of your reading record books.
Maths or Literacy. This will be a thirty minute task, which reinforces the learning taking place in school. Please let us know if you would like additional support with this.
Please ensure your child completes their homework and returns it to school on a Monday morning. It is also VERY important that your child continues to learn their times tables.
If you have any concerns or queries regarding their homework, please do not hesitate to ask their class teacher.
PE kits will need to be in EVERY day as our day for PE is subject to change.

All children are expected to have reading books and records, spellings and P.E kits in school every day in case changes are made to the timetable.
